Kirstine's bookmarks 2019-04-19
Libraries and regional and national Research and Education Networks (RENs) in West and Central Africa have endorsed a template for a Terms of Reference (ToR) for joint activities through which the library and REN communities can advance open science and open access in the region.
The template was completed during a workshop attended by over 30 library and REN representatives in Accra, Ghana. The workshop, on 11 and 12 March, was organized by WACREN (the West and Central African Research and Education Network), EIFL and COAR (the Confederation of Open Access Repositories), with support from the European Union-funded OpenAIRE project and the National Institute of Informatics (NII) in Japan.
